Denver Architectural Styles: Bungalow

One of the most recognizable architectural styles in Denver is the bungalow (1900-1930)

The bungalow is the byproduct of the Arts and Crafts movement, representing its philosophy of utility and simplicity.  In Colorado, this type of architecture was popular from 1900 to around 1930 and is evident in practically every city and town statewide. In Denver, look for bungalows in these neighborhoods: City Park, Congress Park, Platt Park, West Highland, Washington Park

What makes a house a bungalow?

A bungalow is a style of house or cottage that is typically either a single story or has a second, half, or partial story, that is built into a sloped roof. Bungalows are typically small in terms of size and square footage and often are distinguished by the presence of dormer windows and verandas.
